Some followers suggested this to me.
The island known as the “island of madness”, “hell” and “the most haunted place on Earth” is being sold!
Here’s a quick, history behind it:
The plagued people were shipped off to Poveglia Island, a small, secluded land mass that floats between Venice and Lido. There, people lived out the last of their wretched lives together until they died.
Since the island already reeked of death, the next time an epidemic came along, barely alive bodies were dumped there and burned in mass graves.
In the 20s, a mental hospital was built to welcome the island’s newest “guests,” or anybody that showed symptoms of any sort of sickness, physical or mental.
Basically, if you had an itch, away you went to Poveglia where you’d sink your feet into the soil (half dirt, half human ash) and be in the company of over 100K diseased ghosts.
It didn’t help when the place was converted into a hospital for the mentally ill in 1922. Rumor has it, the hospital was home to a number of crude lobotomies, performed by a doctor who’d been driven mad by the ghosts. He later flung himself off the bell tower.
The Italian government is now offering a 99-year lease to whomever’s brave enough to take it over. The italian government thinks it would make a great hotel destination!
"Build a hotel" they said. "It will be fun" they said.

Kevin Francis Gray is an Irish sculptor that creates neoclassical inspired pieces that transcend all conventionalisms.
His technique shows a complete dedication to realism in search for a physical perfection that few have achieved. The meticulously crafted figures lay at the cross roads of real and unreal and open a debate about the current definitions of tradition and innovation. Although his choice of materials, the extreme detail and visual references he incorporates in every piece may come across a conventional, this is exactly where the innovative essence lies.
